The British Broadcasting Corp. said the Soviet Union has stopped jamming its Russian-language radio transmissions. Transmissions from BBC headquarters in London are being clearly heard in Moscow, a spokeswoman said. No reason has been given for ending the jamming, imposed 6 1/2 years ago during the rise of Poland's now-outlawed Solidarity trade union, the spokeswoman said. The BBC's external services managing director, John Tusa, welcomed the cessation of jamming, saying he hopes the relaxation will be extended to the BBC's Polish-language transmissions as well as those of other broadcasters.
